As a prospective driver employee, you have the right to review information provided by
previous employers. You have the right to have errors in the information corrected by the
previous employer(s) and for that previous employer(s) to re-send the corrected
information to the prospective employer; the right to have a rebuttal statement attached to
the alleged erroneous information, if the previous employer and the driver cannot agree on the accuracy of the information.
Driver employees who have previous Department of Transportation regulated employment
history in the preceding three years, and wish to review previous employer provided
investigative information, must submit a written request to the prospective employer, which
may be done at any time, including when applying or as late as thirty (30) days after being
employed or being notified of denial of employment. The prospective employer must
provide this information to the applicant within five (5) business days of receiving the
written request. If the prospective employer has not yet received the requested information
from the previous employer(s), then the five (5) business day deadlines will begin when the
prospective employer receives the requested safety performance history information. If the
driver has not arranged to pick up or receive the requested records within thirty (30) days
of the prospective employer making them available, the prospective motor carrier may
consider the drive to have waived their request to review the records.
